    Will the NKJV also be bound with the historic confessions?
    Will it have cross references?
    What size type?

      I still haven’t heard from Schuyler regarding your questions. I’ll send another email.

      I’m interested in the Schuyler NKJV as acomparable addition to my RL Allan and Cambridge bibles. Does the Schuyler NKJV meet a similar standard of all-around quality as those two premier Bible makers? Thanks.

    • Bible Buying Guide /

      Hi Steve. The Schuyler will meet the same (if not better) standards of Cambridge and Allan. Schuyler is printed and bound by Jongbloed, the same bindery that Cambridge and Allan use. I have very high hopes for Schuyler Bibles and fully expect the highest quality in every aspect. I can’t wait to see the NKJV, and I’m hoping for a wide margin edition in both KJV and NKJV.

    I have one on pre-order already (extremely excited), but I was curious about the goatskin. Will it probably be similar to Allan’s Highland Goatskin Bibles?

    • Bible Buying Guide /

      Hi Brice. Congratulations! My understanding is that it will be similar to Allan’s highland goatskin, just without the yapp. I hope it is as soft as the Longprimer. I have high hopes for Schuyler. I can’t wait to hear how you like it.

    • I received the ESV Schuyler recently and I can say that this is an excellent quality Bible. The goatskin is very limp, the print is large, and the paper decently opaque. The bible itself seems to have a semi-yapp (unexpected), and the best way to explain it is (as far as my knowledge), that it is like a large Cambridge that is thin. I like the Bible itself, but it is WAY larger (or seems that way) than I had imagined.

      Hi Brice. The Schuyler is very quickly sounding like an amazing Bible. I’m glad you like it. Thanks for sharing.

    I prefer to use “supple” rather than “limp” which has a negative connotation. For example we see this connotation in a “limp” handshake!
